I got told I was incorrect in pointing out the hypocrisy of "killing" Vick last week.

All I ask you to do was explain your remark and not leave it to the ambiguous mutual understanding. Its great to have opinions but it's another thing to actually be able to back it up and show what you are saying is true. Anybody can make blanket statements that sound correct but underneath or with further thinking it might not be right. Look no further than Karl Rove and his mastery of spinning the truth.

Like I said I do not think it's a good comparison to contrast a business ethic issue like Addias using slave labor overseas to an individual personal responsibility issue like Mike Vick torturing dogs to their death(allegedly).

They have similarities but they are not the same (both are morally unethical). You say its hypocritical for Addias or Nike to point the finger at Vick when they may or may not be doing something you don't like. Explain that and change my mind, it wouldn't be hard to do. But I won't just fall for a quick glib because it seems right.
